Posted on: September 24th, 2011 at 5:23 pm by

For those in need of a metal fix, look no further. Machine Head is hosting a listening party for their new album Unto the Locust tonight. Granted, an all-ages event with refreshments sounds like a bender with babysitting, but we’ve giving it a shot. After listening to an advance copy for the past week, this album is worth it. Break out your finest black outfits and check it out.

Full Press Release:

Saturday September 24, 2011 *9:00 PM – 12:00 AM* Last Rites 511 West 33rd St NY, NY 511 West 33rd St.* All Ages, refreshments will be served

Machine Head gather with fans and industry in celebration of the much anticipated September 27 release of their new album Unto the Locust on Roadrunner Records.  The Listening Party will take place at Paul Booth’s LAST RITES Tattoo Theatre boasting a new set design that is the ultimate environment to experience the critically acclaimed album  in its entirety.

Refreshments will be served in the all new LAST RITES Lounge featuring notoriously dark and haunting yet equally warm and inviting atmosphere that makes it so unique. LAST RITES is and always will be a true sanctuary for all that share a like-minded appreciation for art that originates from the dark side of the human condition.

Vocalist/guitarist Robb Flynn says of the festivities, “There are listening parties being held for this release all over the world, but we felt that putting a handful of events together here in the States and attending them ourselves would be a great way to give our fans and friends across the country a chance to hear the album before its release, and us a chance to hang with all of them as that’s happening. We can’t wait!”

This event is open to the public, so please invite fans and friends!
